African Harissa sauce coated chicken kebabs

Harissa is an African sauce that is spicy and flavourful with lot of flavours blending in your mouth. Try it and you will fall in love.

Ingredients

6 dried red chili peppers
1 Red bell pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon Olive oil
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/4 cup fresh mint ,Chopped(optional though)

Chicken breast cubes - 1 pound
oil for spraying


Method

Char the pepper on high heat in a broiler or grill or stove top.Turn occasionally with tongs, until skins are blackened, 15 to 20 minutes. Allow to cool then peel and remove the peel and seeds.



Blend all the ingredients together in a processor along with the roasted peppers until well combined and smooth. Use the sauce in salads or marinate tofu,meat or spread on sandwiches. Can be refrigerated up to a month in an air tight container. Marinate the chicken in about 2-3 tbsp of Harissa for about 30 minutes.Baked at 375F for 25minutes. Add tomatoes and bell peppers and tomatoes to the skewers as per taste.

Tip: Dont forget to soak the skewers if they are made of bamboo or any other wood in warm water for about 20  mins to avoid getting burnt in the oven. It they are stainless steel skewers, worry not, just wear your mitts.
